Fire protection is a critical aspect of server room planning and design. It is necessary to ensure life safety, protection of property, continuity of operations and compliance of codes and standards. However, whether the organization is small or large, the authority having jurisdiction over local, state, or federal laws will ultimately dictate fire protection requirements.
This research note will discuss:
- Fire detection, alarms and emergency power off.
- Options in sprinkler systems.
- Clean agent fire suppression systems.
Understand the options in fire detection and suppression, and protect the server room now from a fire disaster in the future.
